Due to poor visibility, two buses collided in Mathura today, resulting in an accident that has been reported on the Yamuna Expressway with at least 40 injuries. All of North India has seen record-low temperature, and in most of the region, the low temperature is accompanied by thick fog, which makes visibility difficult or nonexistent. In addition to negatively affecting road travel, the lack of visibility has a negative impact on rail and flight operations. Due to extremely poor visibility on the roads, particularly during early mornings and late nights, this is the season that sees the highest number of traffic accidents.
According to the most recent news report, at least 40 people were hurt when two buses collided in Mathura on the Yamuna Expressway. The thick fog is thought to have been the primary cause of this accident. As previously mentioned, officials said today that two buses collided early on Monday morning on the Yamuna Expressway in Mathura, Uttar Pradesh, injuring at least forty people. The incident happened in Mathura at MileStone 110 Raya Cut. A bus traveling from Dholpur to Noida and another bus traveling from Etawah to Noida collided at approximately three in the morning.
Admitted Hospitalized Patients, Accidents Cause Thick Mist
Fog-related low visibility is said to have played a role in the incident. There is still a lot of fog in parts of Northern India, making visibility poor. According to officials, nine more injured people were admitted to different hospitals, while 31 injured passengers were admitted to the district hospital.
IMD has issued a red alert because of the fog.
Very thick fog layer grows over Punjab, Delhi, Haryana, North Rajasthan and UP. The IMD published from its X handle that travelers must drive very cautiously solely with fog lights when passing on highways. Given the cold and thick fog prevalent in Delhi and the national capital regions (NCR), which includes Noida, Greater Noida, and Ghaziabad, the India Meteorological Department has put out a red alert. A red alert has been given in Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh, and a yellow alert is also in effect in Rajasthan, according to the weather office.
Driving within the lane is another important safety tip for driving in foggy conditions. This is because making a sudden lane change on a highway can lead to a collision with another car. Additionally, drivers have to make sure that everyone can see both the front and the back of the car they are operating. For this reason, the hazard lights, headlamp, and fog lamps should all be turned on at all times. Maintaining clean and clear windows and mirrors is crucial in the interim. The driver will be able to monitor what is going on the road thanks to this. In addition to following all of these guidelines, drivers need to drive with increased caution when it’s foggy outside.
